Coming Events

Friday 16 May to Monday 19 May
Master's Weekend Trip to Isles of Scilly

An interesting programme of events has been arranged including much local colour in the form of gig racing (strictly as a spectator sport), pub supper and singing as well as sightseeing on both St Mary's and Tresco where we will be shown round the famous Abbey Gardens and the recently opened Flying Boat Club with its collection of modern art. There will be a group dinner in St Mary's Hall Hotel and, weather permitting, a chance of a ride in an RNLI lifeboat.

Further details are available from the Clerk.

Friday 13 June - Lunch on SB Ardwina in St Katherine's Dock

The funds raised from this lunch will be given as a donation to the RNLI - it is hoped that Janet Kelly the Chief Officer of the Tower Lifeboat Station will, as our guest speaker, tell us something of the work done by what is the UK's busiest lifeboat station.

Monday 23 June - Committee Meetings at 77 Portland Place

Tuesday 24 June - Common Hall and Lunch at Farmers' & Fletchers' Hall
